Magazine Description

In this issue

In Walt Disney’s 1995 animated film Pocahontas, Grandmother Willow says “Sometimes the right path is not the easiest one”. The path to success is full of challenges, hurdles and obstacles. But in the end, taking the right path will pay off, regardless of how much harder you had to work on that path.In this issue, we present the story of one such self-motivated being, who didn’t succumb to her destiny and went against the stereotype to choose the right path and live a life that she desired for herself and not what her fate had thrust upon her. When told as a 29-year-old that her choice was between paralysis and death, anyone else would have had a heartbreak. But for Deepa Malik, life has never been able to pose a challenge that could dim her spirit. She has never been daunted by adversity. We are privileged and honoured to present an exclusive interview with Padmashri Deepa Malik whose life is a case history of triumphs against all odds, a portrayal of indomitable will and insurmountable spirit. Interestingly, Deepa Malik is quite earnest in her appreciation for physiotherapy in her life, be it her post surgical rehab or her career as a sports person and athlete over the last decade. She acknowledges and emphasizes the tremendous role played by all her physios right from the early childhood to the most recent ones she has worked with in her getting back to the rhythm. As Physiotherapists, you all deal with people with disability. The next time you see someone with disability lose hope, share Deepa Malik’s inspirational journey and motivate them to reach their highest potential. After all there is “ability” hidden within every “disability”. We are sure Deepa’s story would give you valuable insights into the mind and psyche of a champion athlete who created history despite being limited by her physical ability.
